Receiving your Heirloom Rose 
Your rose will come wrapped in plastic to keep it moist and cool during transit, like the photo below. Once you receive your rose, remove the plastic and give it some water. Be sure to gradually acclimatize your rose to your environment. Click here to understand more about your Hardiness Zone.

Planting your Heirloom Rose 
Each rose was shipped with Planting Instructions. We’ve included the steps below. 

Pick a Location: Find a spot with at least six hours of sun a day and good drainage. Your location should be at least 3-4 feet away from other plants and 6-8 feet away from large shrubs or ramblers. 

  1. Prepare: Dig a hole that is at least 24” wide by 24” deep. Once all the soil is removed from the hole, mix with organic potting soil without granular fertilizer. 
  2. Plant: Remove the rose from container. Use the soil from step two to plant rose in the center of the hole, about 1” deeper than the soil line. It is not suggested to use granular fertilizer in the first year of your rose, as it could burn the roots and kill the rose. 
  3. Provide: Your newly planted Heirloom Rose should be watered 2-3 times per week until the rose is established. Make sure to water at the base to prevent potential disease. Once your rose is established, plan to give at least one to two inches of water per week throughout the growing season.
